Around 25 underprivileged children, supported by the Mendonsa Foundation, gathered at Colaba Woodland Park in Cuff Parade and participated in the sapling planting campaign, led by environmentalist Abhishek Talwar. After the planting, the children received storybooks, coloring books and worksheets for Biplob the Bumblebee.
Abhishek Talwar chatted with them about the importance of protecting the environment and how “Biplob the Bumblebee”, the eco-warrior embarks on adventures to save the planet and Mother Nature. Abhishek Talwar, who is extremely passionate about teaching children about the environment and who spearheaded this whole initiative, said: “The only way to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality by 2070, set by Prime Minister, is to motivate future generations to work towards them. This initiative is a small step in that direction. By planting young trees of different species, we create much-needed carbon sinks in our urban landscape. We plan to continue this initiative throughout Mumbai and reach as many children as possible and include them in this movement.
Harshita Narwekar said, “When Biplobworld and the Mendonsa Foundation approached me about this initiative, I was extremely excited to be part of it. I have already worked to plant 22,000 saplings in my neighborhood. We definitely need more trees in our city and initiatives like this will go a long way in making our Mumbai greener and cleaner. We should encourage our younger generation to take care of nature. When we take care of her. She takes care of us.
Dr. Suhani Mendonsa, Project Director at the Mendonsa Foundation, said of the partnership with Biplobworld: “We have always supported social causes, especially the welfare of children. Through this initiative, we have been able to help these children inculcate the habit of being aware of the environment that we hope will stay with them throughout their lives. We hope to continue this partnership with Biplobworld to educate young people in our country about nature.
